Git has now become the lynchpin for typical DevOps tasks, commonly referred to as GitOps. The underlying issues are introduced using the example of Gitlab CI in combination with Docker. A Spring Boot REST API serves as a hands-on project that integrates Docker and Docker Compose for the local development are integrated.
